schrol unlock on keyboard

Asked by Mary Madsen on 2009-09-04

I turned on my scroll lock key and my logitech wave keyboard accidentally and I don't know how to get it back off. Y/RNB-90 is the model on the keyboard. Anybody know what key to push to get it off?

Usually it is the same key again to unlock scroll. It is only marke "Scroll Lock" but pressing it again should unlock it

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

unfortunately the scroll lock key isn't identified on the keyboard. I
thought maybe there would be a map of the keyboard that could help me out or
maybe someone else had the same situation and remember what they did or
which key they touched to get it back off.

Thanks anyway.

You can see your keypad layout this way (for Jaunty):
System-->Preferences-->Keyboard
click on tab Layouts
click on a layout in the list
click on Print
click on Print Preview.

But it seems to me Scroll Lock light is assigned to "On" by another application. For instance I assigned it "On" when I choose alternative keyboard layout. In this case you have to know or remember the key combination that turns on the Scroll Lock indicating something.

Or otherwise try some key combinations like Crtl, Alt, Shift and so on without any application opened. But be careful not to press a letter key because this eventually could mean certain action.

Hi :)

Have you been able to try the new Ubuntu 10.04 before it gets officially released?
http://www.ubuntulinux.org/testing/lucid/beta2
Trying it as a LiveCd or as an extra dual/multi-boot would be ideal. Developers and everyone are keen to try to iron out any problems before 10.04 gets officially released so you might find faster & more effective answers to your bug reports which would make 10.04 work better on your system for you

Thanks and regards from
Tom :)

Can you help with this problem?
